Well I’m back home now after a three week stay in hospital. Don’t worry, it was nothing serious, just some medication changes that have made my insomnia a thing of the past and allowed me reduce the amount of medication I was taking for my depression or mood disorder. I also spent part of last week and three days this week doing psychological testing. I had done some the first three years after I first became ill and they will compare the data. It might give them an idea what exactly I have. My doctor has never been able to pin point this as their was the psychosis in 2008, and a definite mood component, plus the chronic fatigue. Good luck is all I can say.
I was able to rest up a lot in hospital and had many wonderful visiters at night. A came every Wednesday and brought me this beautiful tall orchid. I was spoiled with too much chocolate and food/drink from the gift shop and other places. I missed most of our hot weather as it was always air conditioned inside. But I did do some walking around the grounds when I was able. I also had extremely nice and excellent room mates, new friends.
The worst thing was spending my 30th birthday in hospital but I got a pass and went for dinner to Earls South Edmonton Common with my Mom and brother at night. We also discovered the Lindt Chocolate store in the area and were highly impressed. On weekends I had pass to go home. The first pass I felt horrible, the second I went to the mall with my Mom, dinner with A, and errands on Sunday.
I got out of hospital yesterday. A drove me home in his new car. I am so happy to be home and look forward to a birthday celebration with friends in August, the Taste of Edmonton, reading some books on my tablet, and trying to complete my Residential Interiors program with one course on Residential furnishings. Hopefully, there are some other activities in the works for me. I feel like I have a bit more energy, so I hope it’s true.
